Philosophy and Mathematics are never a waste of time.

Anyway, go look over numerous lens tests and you will see the wider lenses are more prone to barrel distortion and then added to that is way greater depth of field.

Yup. Wider. As in FOV. A 12mm lens is not a wide on 1/1.7", much like how a 120mm isn't a telephoto on large format.

So like I said before, mFT has more of a problem going wide than ff (well, if you don't want that huge depth of field).

Nope, they're equal. Unless by "FF" you meant 35mm SLRs, in which case they're considerably worse, though that's due to the SLR part rather than the 35mm.
